Christmas is coming fast, so it is time to remember the reason for the season and help others.
Kelli Reep, director of communications at Methodist Family Health, said the facility’s annual Angel Tree program is back.
“Right now, we have about 85 kids left who have not yet been sponsored,” Reep said “It costs about $150 to fulfill each child’s wish list so if anyone would like to contribute funds, we can do the shopping. If they would prefer to choose a child’s wish list themselves, they can visit ChristmasatMFH.com and see the lists available. If they shop from that list, the items will be directly shipped to us, and we’ll take care of everything from there.”
Indeed, if you click here, you’ll see three options to pick from.
Choose a child’s list (all items on the list can be purchased for $150 or less) and purchase the items on that list
Pick and choose items to send
Contribute to the Methodist Family Health Foundation, which provides for the necessities of the children and families in our care throughout the year.
It is important to remember that if you pick a list, Amazon does the delivery and that could be delayed depending on logistics and such.
“We work to provide all the kids in our care whose families need assistance with Christmas with gifts,” Reep said. “Sometimes, we have kids in our outpatient counseling who are in need, and we provide gifts for their siblings as well. Whether it is gifts or funds to make those possible, whatever people feel moved to do in their hearts will help the children we serve feel valued and loved this season.
“Regardless of their situation – abandoned, abused, neglected or struggling with psychiatric, behavioral, emotional or spiritual issues – every gift someone gives them includes dignity and acceptance. That’s what we all want deep down.”
That’s true. Dignity and acceptance.
